Police at Harbour Bridge Sydney causes peak-hour chaos

A police operation on the Harbour Bridge caused chaos for Sydney commuters with traffic queues stretching for kilometres past the Anzac Bridge and the Lane Cove Tunnel.

Anyone hoping to cross the Harbour Bridge in either direction was urged to find another way of getting across the city, the Transport Management Centre said.

By 9am, all lanes had reopened and the operation, which required a significant police and ambulance response, was resolved.

The traffic remained banked up, more than 8 kilometres past the Anzac Bridge to Lilyfield and more than 16 kilometres to the Lane Cove Tunnel. The Transport Management Centre recommended using Victoria Road or the Sydney Harbour Tunnel instead.

“Southbound traffic is queued back onto the M2 in Macquarie Park and northbound traffic is slow on the Eastern Distributor, Victoria Road at Drummoyne, and on all roads approaching the Rozelle Interchange,” a Transport Management Centre spokesman said.

Buses travelling over the Harbour Bridge were also delayed.
